My SS10x42's windage turret has lost its audible clicks.  I can get them to come back if I crank it fast a few times, but then they are only about half as loud as the elevation knobs, which has very loud clicks.  If I move the knob slow it is almost silent (have to put it up to your ear to hear a very faint click).  I have tried 2 different sizes of o-rings (Danco #10 and Danco #30).  I am using the Danco # 10's right now because when they are stretched out they fit more like the origional o-rings.  I have also tried swapping the turret knobs and the problem remains in the windage turret.  Does anybody have any idea what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance.

Try this thread, sounds like it may be a lubrication issue hy&PN=0&TPN=2


Another scenario is to check your hearing ....the reason I say this is that I've gotten good at guessing when the beeps are or skating around the hearing check....that is until retirement when my problem will be manifestly known to all (and I will deny ever firing any weapons other than Uncle Sugar's).  I always wear hearing protection but as I'm guessing you probably know that's not always an option.
